Machine learning for road width capture from aerial photography

In this proof of concept, the use of feature extraction through machine learning using convolutional neural networks to classify aerial photography pixels as either road or non-road, and produce a basis for a polygon feature representing the road surface (and therefore road width) is demonstrated. Aurecon received a brief from a client to build a […]

Artificial intelligence benefits for geospatial-focused drone businesses

Geospatial insights are in high demand and automating the feature extraction process is key to scaling up your aerial mapping services. Along with the hardware and software sectors, the drone services market is the largest segment in the commercial drone industry with the strongest expansion. According to the market research report “Global Drone Service Market […]

AI platform launches paid plans

To make the benefits of artificial intelligence accessible to everyone, Picterra developed an online platform that allows users without machine-learning or programming expertise to plug AI into their image analysis and geospatial analytics workflow. What started in June 2018 as a beta version of an AI-powered image analysis platform, turned into a geospatial analytics hub […]

Release of ethics guidelines for trustworthy AI

In April, the European Commission’s High-Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence presented their ethics guidelines for trustworthy artificial intelligence. This follows the publication of the guidelines’ first draft in December 2018 on which more than 500 comments were received through an open consultation. According to the guidelines, trustworthy artificial intelligence should be: Lawful – respecting […]

Draft charter for artificial intelligence in geoinformatics

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) seeks public comment on the draft Geospatial Artificial Intelligence (GeoAI) Domain Working Group (DWG) Charter. Artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning (DL) technologies have started to be coupled with geoinformatics and are bringing geospatial intelligence to various domains, including autonomous transportation, predictable healthcare and sustainable urban planning/design/development, among others. For […]
